This is nothing short of a disgrace. Unthankful, ruthless, and a kick in the face of the fans. Cossy is a South Australian icon just like the frog cakes, the pie floater and the Mall's Balls. Nobody would ever think of removing those!
He may not have been the next Bradman but his cultworthy appearance posed a welcome counterpart to the Redbacks' lack of success and general paddling about at the bottom end of all possible tables.
I hope that Cossy finds a new loving home; teams who are interested in his adoption please contact the SACA. Cossy is a friendly and well-behaved little cricketer, who loves to meet new people and shows good skills in the slips. New owners should be aware of his slightly increased food costs and the need for regular agility training, but he will reward you with his loyalty, dedication and receptiveness for belly rubs.
